Over 400 Residents Pick Up Free Compost Made from Scarsdale's Food Scraps

Scarsdale’s food scrap recyclers reaped the rewards of their work at free compost give back day at the Scarsdale Recycling Center on Saturday April 24. In a testament to local enthusiasm for their gardens an estimated 400 people turned out to take home their share of two truckloads of compost that was produced from Scarsdale’s food waste. They know that the organic composition of this mix is a rich supplement to their soil. See photos below of everyone throwing in their shovel including State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin and Scarsdale Village Trustee Jonathan Lews.compost1

CAC Chair Michelle Sterling said, “Scarsdale’s annual free compost give back day on April 24 was a fantastic day! There was a terrific turnout as residents came throughout the day to pick up compost for their gardens. It was a great opportunity for residents to see and use the finished product from our food scraps. In addition to the compost there were also volunteers there throughout the day with educational materials and starter kits available for residents to sign up. If you’d like to be a part of this terrific program that safeguards our environment please email composting@scarsdale.com and a volunteer will sign you up and get you started!”
